Refugees Arriving in Germany – Photo Essay by Herbert Piel
Some of you may know photographer Herbert Piel – instructor in Leica Akademie Master Classes, renowned photojournalist documenting German and international events since the seventies and Leica Forum member stratherb.
It’s my personal concern to suggest his current project „Ankunft in Rheinland („Arrival in Rhineland-Palatinate“) documenting the arrival of thousands of refugees here and the work of all helpers – volunteers and professional helpers.
That these images were made with Leicas (M240 and Monochrome 246) is only a side aspect.
More important are the striking images which show the many faces and facets of refugees in Germany.
I’d really appreciate if you share this project in as many places as possible (Nick Ut did so too)!
